LAUNDRY TIPS
Preparing
clothes for washing
Follow these recommendations
to help you prolong the life of
your garments.
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type
of detergent will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency." This
wash system, along with less water, will create too much
sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular
detergent will likely result in washer errors, longer cycle times,
reduced rinsing performance, and may result in component
failures and noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are
made to produce the right amount of suds for the best
performance.
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions to
determine the amount of detergent to use.
Close zippers, snaps, and hooks to avoid snagging other
items. Remove pins, buckles, and other hard objects to avoid
scratching the washer interior. Remove non-washable
trim
and ornaments.
Empty pockets and turn them inside-out.
Turn down cuffs; brush away lint and dirt.
Turn synthetic knits inside-out to avoid pilling.
Tie strings and sashes so they will not tangle.
Mend tears, loose hems, and seams.
Treat spots and stains.
Stained or wet garments should be washed promptly for
best results.
Mix large and small items, avoid washing single items, and
load evenly.
Wash small items, such as infant socks, in mesh garment
bags. It is recommended
that more than one garment bag be
used, and that each garment bag be filled with equal
amounts of material.
Sorting
Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones, even if
they would normally be washed together. Separate lint-givers
(towels, chenille) from lint-takers (corduroy, synthetics,
permanent press). When possible, turn lint-givers inside-out.
Separate dark colors from light colors, colorfast items from
noncolorfast
items.
Sort by fabric and construction
(sturdy cottons, knits, delicate
items).
Unloading
Remove clothes from washer after the cycle is completed.
Metal objects such as zippers, snaps, and buckles may rust if
left in the washer basket for a long time.
When unloading garments, occasionally
check under the
rubber rim at the front of the tub for small items.
